The moment that we begin to develop psychically we begin to notice that “the other side” is not a uniform, rainbow riding place with harps and chubby nude cherub babies. Well, that actually sounds quite creepy so let’s just take a second and be grateful that there is a lot more going on then that.

As we tune into other realms we begin to differentiate densities and dimension, light and shadow. We see that when we go beyond our physicality there is a whole new level of reality that we must learn to navigate. Despite the complexity of these realms there is often a strange, deep feeling of home humming from within. This is the feeling that we learn to sink into as we travel so that it may lead us to the experiences that will grow our soul.


The place that seems to be the most spoken about is the astral realm. Although the language varies to describe this level of reality many people will recognize the astral realm as being the 4th dimension. This is the realm that rests just above our 3d world. It is the place we find ourselves popping into when we dream and the last density we must move through before we re-enter our bodies after astrally projecting. Some people learn how to go beyond this level of consciousness into lighter realms while others believe that the 4th dimension is all that there is.

One distinguishing feature of the 4th dimension is that is is divided into two levels, one level, at the bottom, is called the lower astral while the upper level, at the top, is called the upper astral or etheric plane. The 4th dimension is huge and mystics have even divided this plane further, however, for our purposes we will keep it simple. The lower astral contains the densest energies while the upper astral contains the lighter energies. The beauty of the astral realm is that it allows information to be very specific as the higher we go dimensionally the more unified things become. The ugly of the astral realm is the lower portion which represents the worst of humanity. These aspects of ourselves are too heavy and distorted to move into the higher realms. This leaves the lower astral chaotic, dark, confusing, manipulative, violent, grotesque, dull, and pretty much every other disturbing quality that you can think of.

Perhaps the most bizarre element of the lower astral realm is the false light. A place that has halted many-a-meditator in their tracks. I will give you a trigger warning now: if you are sensitive to shadow teachings turn back now because it gets a bit dark. For those with their (astral) sea legs…carry on!

What is the false light? 

The false light is a specific structure of within the lower 4th density that mirrors the appearance of the cosmos. It is as though someone, or something, along the way decided that it would be a great idea to mock all that is good into the universe to trick people into staying. After all, why would people invest any energy in a place that was purely negative? One of the trickiest aspects of the false light is that it can be so convincing.

The false light is made up of a hierarchy of beings, places and stories.  It is very similar to the upside down in Stranger Things, the only difference would be that the lower astral may appear to be light – hence the title ‘false light.’

The lower half of the astral realm is a catch all for beings that are in the densest phase of non physical existence. These are beings who are full of trauma, they have turned their back on the light and are exploring what life is like going dark. Many of these beings will look distorted but sometimes they can actually appear as light beings and the only distinguishing factor will be the level of information they give out, or something feeling a little… ahem…off.

At first glance, with little experience navigating ones own consciousness one may assume that beings originating in the false light are actually higher dimensional beings. After all, they are from a higher plane, so they must be more evolved, right? Upon closer examination these lower astral false-lighters are not ascended, they are actually part of the false light structure and are vampiric by nature. More about this later.

What is essential to know about the “false light” is that encountering it is a test that challenges us here in 3d to learn discernment, attention to subtle details and release our own fear and trauma. This tricky level of reality doesn’t exist to torture us, but to teach us. In order to get past this limited level of consciousness we must see the false light as formidable but also a tool for our growth.

Due to the twisted darkness of the lower astral there are many who speak about spirituality who have a lot of fear about this realm, fear to the point that they don’t want to meditate or even “dabble” in the spiritual arts. This perspective of fear and powerlessness is not going to serve us as it is the exact perspective that ensures you engage with this reality, whether you are trying to or not. Whether we wish to acknowledge it or not, we are spiritual beings and there is a whole active part of us that exists in higher dimensional realms. Our spirit encourages us to refine our emotional body and mind so that we may break through patterns and beliefs that keep us from experiencing our light, purpose and deeper and deeper levels of peace and harmony. What better way than to have a place where our fears and traumas are mirrored to us? As with all out of body or intuitive interaction it is our own heart and mind that attracts the experiences that we have. Understanding this is part of  spiritually maturing.


Why the false light is referred to so much in spiritual teachings is because many of the beings what exist within this level of reality are mirrors of masters, worlds, and experiences that exist in higher realms. This serves as a great test for us as we learn to navigate the higher realms. There are people who fancy themselves channels, or spiritually connected, who are not actually breaking through the membrane of the lower astral. They are indeed connecting with beings who are non physical but these beings are not ascended in any capacity. This is where we see false spiritual teachers and some of the more bizarre aspects of the New Age. Suffice to say, it can get a little weird (and not in a good way) when people fall prey to this realms influence.

How to move beyond the false light?

When we learn discernment, heart connection, vulnerability and self love we are able to move through the membrane that separates 4d from 5d. This is what we call moving through the “eye of the needle.” This imagery represents releasing the discordant energy (trauma) and attachments that keeps us plugged into the lower realms. All of the pain that we carry, where we have not forgiven, becomes like a mass we become heavy. Our energy becomes discordant and this prevents us from maintaining a pillar of connection into the higher densities, the densities beyond the lower astral. We lose our intuitive insight and we live from our ego and lower mind causing it to be over-worked and thus lean into fear based interpretations of life such as: Scarcity, domination, obsession with hierarchies and making yourself small.

Once we begin doing our personal work we begin naturally being thrusted, like a pulse, into 5d. We get downloads and flashes of information, we feel deep peaceful awareness, we feel a sense of oneness and interconnectedness with all things. These sometimes small saturations of our being into the higher densities encourage us to continue. This is essentially the nitty gritty of the “ascension process” it is this pulsing, or pulling, of our energy beyond the false light into the higher realms. As we do this we become wise to our own multidimensionality and let go of the grips of our fear based ego that keeps us unconscious and susceptible of the false light and backwards workings of the lower astral.

Fear/trauma entities of the false light

Image: WeHeartIt

The false light runs off of fear. It is the key spectrum these beings draw from because it makes them feel powerful and dominant. This is significant to note as when we begin to lose sight of the nourishment of  spirit we begin to dominate others in an attempt to take their light. If someone can be lower on the emotional spectrum than them, they feel better. They seek this type of interaction to survive. The beings that call this place home are lost (at best), corrupt, destructive and desperately vampiric (at worst).

“How can any one get like that?”  you may ask. We have to remember that there are people (and inter-dimensional beings) that live from a completely different point in consciousness than we do. When we turn our back on our light, when we no longer believe that we are divine, when we refuse to shift gears surrender to our heart and love ourselves we begin to orient the aspects of our consciousness associated with the astral plane into that structure. When we stop finding gratitude, seeing beauty in ourselves and others, dropping into peaceful meditations, slowing down, reaching for the light and letting ourselves sink into lower emotions for longer and longer periods of time we become more and more enmeshed with the lower astral. It is not something that we are necessarily consciously aware of and we are often distracted by the dramas and distraction of the 3d world.

Image: WeHeartIt

The gradualness of this descent is what is tricky, however, if a human being stays in that space of self denial they will cut themselves off from their own life force and become vampiric. We are the only ones that can save ourselves and we will descend into the darkest of nights until we can rise to that occasion. To be clear, it is not that the universe that has turned its back on us, it is that we have turned our back on ourselves. We have abandoned our spirit. We choose to hold trauma and a sense of helplessness so tightly so that it smothers our heart. When this happens we cut ourselves off from certain spectrums of energy that are essential to our being. Still needing this energy we begin to try to manipulate, dominate and abuse others so that we can survive. We may even become so sick that we feel we have the right to hurt people. The rush of energy from this darker behaviour of course does not compare to the depth and vastness of higher dimensional connection, but many people forget that that level of connections exists or that it is possible for them. The dull manic light of the lower astral seems like heaven to those that are thirsty and lost at sea.

The false light is a vampiric hierarchy

When a soul reaches this darkness where their whole system reverses into vampirism it is because they are in deep pain. There were circumstances where they felt so victimized and traumatized that they begin to believe that that type of interaction with the world is all that exists. They have intense fear, they do not trust the information that is coming in from the heart. To be vulnerable is a risk and they see every situation as a threat or an opportunity to feed on people. This is a state of complete survival. I speak about this dynamic in my Narcissism video where I describe this issue as being a state of severe survivalism from deep trauma. This trauma can be rooted in the current life and/or mirrored in past lives. The idea that one can simply be vulnerable, let their soul fill them, or to be connected to others, is completely blocked by times where that vulnerability was stolen. Perhaps it was naivety that lead to that pain, rather than deep conscious vulnerability when their trauma happened and it was such a shock they no longer can take a risk and fall into the unknown, aka. their heart/soul. They no longer know how to distinguish between awakened vulnerability and intimacy and their traumatic experiences where this vulnerability was exploited.

When we are a bundle of fear, when the majority of our emotions and belief systems are stemming from fear we are locked into the false light. Our 4d body and thus our perspective of higher consciousness will remain there until we learn to truly feel love for ourselves and others. We will be locked into the false light system until we allow ourselves to fall into the unknown which means we no longer continuously reference our egoic mind and our need to control.

Overly analytical out of control mind energy is heavily rooted in the 4th dimension, after this dimension more and more of the soul and heart energies begin to silence and balance the mind. This is why many great spiritual practitioners clear their mind or simply start from their heart, they understand it is a cleaner connection.  In fact, the energy of mind and thought can masquerade as psychic connection and spirit when in reality you are not even dipping into “soul.” It is non-physical, but it is not “soul.” It should be noted that there are people who teach spirituality completely from the false light. When this happens it is mainly an intellectual pursuit and there is no genuine fluidity or surrendering into soul. Their teachings may use spiritual terminology but it is the mind that is stimulated and there is no real bridge into the heart and soul. This may be a subtle difference at first but when you can distinguish the difference it becomes obvious. People who are in a lot of emotional pain or new to spirituality are the most susceptible to these types of teachers.

Image: WeHeartIt

The trajectory for these types of spiritual teachers is not great as they give themselves over to beings that are sick and eventually get instructions to do bizarre things that we would call “satanic” including hurting yourself or others. That is why there is often a deep fascination with suicide as people who are entangled with these teachers become a food source and evolving out of it would mean that the the false light would weaken. People affected by false light often try to hide by playing the martyr as garnering pity disarms people from questioning or digging deeper into their character flaws. I understand that this is a difficult topic to discuss, but this is the reality of working with lower astral beings from a place of pain. Destruction and domination is the way for the false light.

More on false light beings

Lower astral entities create chaos. They are known as demons. They may offer information and appear to be light but in reality they are part of a lower density false light vampiric hierarchy. You can tell that these beings are around because it will be chaotic. People confuse their energy as an exciting, stimulating and exhilarating rush rather than the steady full peaceful expansion of the higher realms. If it is your soul rooted beyond the false light you are connecting with your genuine higher-self, it will be a very deep and peaceful interconnectedness with positive emotions, it will feel very loving. When it is a false light being the energy is exciting, chaotic, manic and the heart is not deep or full. The mind is completely sped up and the feeling is exhilaration. Many of us do not recognize this difference because we do not love ourselves and did not have good examples of love in childhood. We confuse empty over stimulation and exhilaration with joy and higher vibrations.

If the false light is so destructive why do people fall into it at all?

If you are someone who is depressed and anxious this type of mania and excitement may actually feel better than where you are. That is the risk of staying in lower emotional states for prolonged periods of time and not developing the heart as a constant reference point. You become susceptible to getting lost in this lower paradigm. The risk of linking into this chaotic realm also increases when people drink alcohol or take substances.

These beings within the lower astral generally want to establish cults, this is so that, as vampiric entities, they can have a supply. The False light needs energetic supply to function, it is a victim-victimizer paradigm. Remember, these are beings that are cutting themselves off from life force because they are in fear. They still need that energy to function, so they need to take it from others via establishing co-dependant relationships and it doesn’t get much more co-dependant than a cult.

False light and Humanity

The third dimension is important to the lower astral as it is the level of reality where they hope to get their sustenance. The fractured and forgetful type of incarnations that the third dimension allows is ideal. This means that there must be people that are corded to these entities that allow them to feed and gain influence. When human beings begin plugging into the false light there are earmarks. Here are four of them in regards to the spiritual community:


Cultish behaviour is a clear indicator of false light roots. These beings within the lower astral generally want to establish cults, and for quite a practical reason: so that, as vampiric entities, they can have a supply. The False light needs energetic supply to function, it is a victim-victimizer paradigm. Remember, these are beings that are cutting themselves off from life force because they are in fear. They still need that energy to function, so they need to take it from others via establishing co-dependant relationships and it doesn’t get much more co-dependant than a cult or “community” based around the teacher.

Cults often fetishize suicide & have chaotic relationships with sex. Why? Simply because these are the types of activities that specifically engage the lower chakras allowing a siphoning cord to attach to lower astral entities. Sex may be a part of enticing people into the joining of the cult, hoping that that primal energy will override any gut warnings. Or, unfortunately sex will become part of the cult. If that wasn’t bad enough the leader will also become abusive and manipulative, especially when there seems to not be enough supply, or the supply is threatened. Often times people who belong to cults that are rooted in the false light entities eventually end up in very sick situations all on the name of spirituality.  Sometimes false light based teachers are able to hide or subdue the creepy element creating a subtle flow while other times mass suicides & murders happen. When things like this happen it is more than someone who is mentally ill, the person is mentally ill because they are being used by false light entities. This is why we can find similarities in cults and psychopaths, it all involves destructive behaviour as a harvest for the false light.

  • Mayan sacrifice culture (note the removal of the heart)
  • Heavens gate cult
  • Jim Jones
  • Koresh/Waco
  • Children of God

There are even cult like societies and organizations that do not reference spirituality but still contain the dynamic of self harm and sexual exploitation. Not all false light beings us the direct avenue of spirituality.

Inflated ego

Inflated ego is another tell-tale marker of someone who is being influence by the false light. It is important to remember that it should be more about the work, the material, than the teacher. False light beings will give susceptible people with spiritual interest and leadership qualities grandiose ideas about who they are. These entities will make them feel important, as though they are saviours. They will tell them that their abilities are more powerful, that their perspective is more important. These teachers will feel their mission is huge and ideas of fame and fortune will begin to become hypnotic. Messiah mode activated!

Beings within the false light understand that if the ego is fed these sorts of lies it will keep the individual coming back again and again for this exalted feeling and of course the path to promised fame. This stroking of the ego distracts the “leader” from their own organic unfoldment because they are now addicted to the idea of being idolized. Rather than truly love themselves and work through their shadows they become addicted to external energy. Their behaviour will often have flashes of cruelness and they may become eager to claim any exalted status or materialistic venture that crosses their path. They’re thirsty because deep down something just ain’t right.

Image: WeHeartIt

This type of dynamic between false light  is clearly played out in the vampire myth.  It is the idea that if a false light being knocks, and you let them in, you will dance, there will be a courtship and they will bite you. When they bite you they will have passed onto you, via osmosis, their spiritual disease. You will either die if you cannot bear to become like that, or you will become a vampire just like them. You will be locked into the false light until you can overcome it. The false light is completely based on this exact exchange. This fascination with vampires in popular culture is an expression of the human capacity to enmesh with the false light. So when the vampire lurks do not answer theor knock, don’t even look through the peep hole.


Another earmark of the false light is that their ideas are not original. They will often steal or “recycle” other peoples information, it is a completely parasitic way of life. This can be tricky as this day and age there is so much information available with the internet it can be difficult to know whether content is being stolen or not.  The reason why people who are lost in the false light spectrum lose their creativity is because inspiration comes through the heart and this area of the individual is weak and nearly completely shut down. When this occurs the teacher, now addicted to lower energy, needs to re-word other peoples material in order to stay relevant. They may also complete lie about their lives or experiences so that they can position themselves into a position of influence.

Non Dualism

It is not uncommon for individuals who are associated with the false light to base their teachings heavily in Non-Dualism. At its core, there is nothing wrong with Non-Dualism itself but this perspective is easily distorted to separate students from their boundaries and individuality, often times before those integral aspects of their personality have been solidified. We all need to develop our individuality and boundaries before we can authentically begin participating in any type of group. Without this personal development imbalanced spiritual teachers can get away with avoiding responsibility and make things feel relative when they have been manipulative or lacked compassion with others. When Non-Dualism is being abused suddenly the teacher can do no wrong, everything is a projection, it’s all relative. Suddenly primary virtues of spirituality such as compassion, kindness and humility seem to dissolve, funny that! Welcome to spiritual gas lighting at its finest.

Although this information can be disturbing to discuss it is important that we understand the shadow of human consciousness and how it behaves when it becomes sick. By understanding this information we can begin to discern the people and experiences we allow into our lives. When the false light is starved our society begins to move out of this heightened  duality/division and we begin to heal. We are designed to live in a more symbiotic way on this planet but we must be willing to take a good honest look within ourselves and our society to create this change. Hiding from our shadows whether they be individual or collective feeds them.

    I remember meeting and playing with these demons vampires and false lights since a very young age and over the years especially more so in the last 6 years have learned to recognize those that aren’t immediately visibly revealing their energy or bad nature. I remember it took longer before than it does now almost immediately to feel that something was wrong or off about them. Now I start to recognize not only the feeling of attempted deception or being hearded thru sometimes recurring places or events there sometimes resembling real people or places in the 3d life but I have been noticing physical deformities such as eyes are larger elongated horizontally hollow dark opening similar to masks. I feel they differ from masks I saw at the weird masquerade, some confusing male/female costumes, and a violent spirit attempted to overcome me

    Hear that, sister! I’m having some pretty good wrestling matches with my self these days, but starting to see my Self through it all.
    Exciting times! Finally “seeing” why I’m here these days.

    A few years ago I was in desperate need for healing and I lept into reiki therapy. I was very commited with the process. I became friends with my therapist and encouraged him with his work. When I felt more stable I started participating more in his meditation group than in reiki. As I started to tap more and more into my own abilities/intuition/spirit, I started noticing when he was not OK. At one point things started shifting in a very strange way. I felt he got too focused on being the leader of the group, getting followers, etc. I began to feel something wasn’t quite right. At one point it started to bother me SO much I couldn’t ignore it. I sorta quit abruptly. It was tough. I believe it was a phase he was going through and I had to let go. The whole situation helped me learn a lot and I’m thankful for the good and the bad and moving past it.

    Another of Gig’s videos I needed to watch. One side of my family are heavily into victim hood, and as a result they are very much energy vampires. I have known this for over 10 years but have never understood it as well as I do now after watching this video. I often get dragged, or probably jump too easily into their games and conflicts, and subsequently I end up feeling drained or irritated for days or even weeks after contact with them, despite knowing full well what is going on. This video has given me so much clarity on the issue I can now see it for what it truly is and not agree to play in the game, but simply hold my light in focus and send them love and forgiveness. Thank you so very much Gigi, for having the bravery to post this video. I can also see that a few other “Gurus” I know fall into this category. My instinct has always been that there is something not quite right, and now I know why. Thank you so much Gigi.

    Hi GiGi,
    What do you do if you are being severely attacked as you are coming of a prescription drug which is adverse to you to begin with? I feel as though I am going mad and my brain often tries to fool me into suicide bc it’s so unbearable and at times takes over. I know it’s not the real me? I detoxed an opiate last year and had been on it 13 years and I stopped being able to sleep and became manic on it towards the end. When I stopped being able to sleep the doctor put me on clonazepam and it turned on me 2 months ago. All I have is fear and it’s chemical but I’m having breakdowns that are psychotic in nature while trying to taper off the clonazepam. I also have severe suicidal thoughts, medication PTSD, and I don’t want to die and/or commit suicide, and end up in the lower astral but all I can think about is the negative aspects of my life and have constant fear and torture everyday. What do I do? Help please!

    1. Trópico de Capricornio October 17, 2019 at 8:44 pm

      I am going through the same. I had depression since very young, and was hellbent on healing myself through spirituality, meditation, faith and only natural/holistic methods. After many years I finally accepted taking antidepressants because I had hit rock bottom and had been suicidal for two years. The medication gave me my life and hope back for 6+ years. But my depression is not entirely healed so I started going to alternative therapy and none of them worked, one after the other, they all told me the meds are bad. I’m back to being suicidal even though I’m still on meds. Weaning off the meds makes me extremely erratic and suicidal. I’d be willing to live my entire life with this crutch if it wasn’t for the constant message from the spiritual/new age movement that I can’t truly heal my depression or grow spiritually without leaving the meds first.

    Hi Gigi
    Thank you for explaining this subject in such great depth. I have wanted to find clarity about this subject for so long. I realised it was my fear creating this problem for myself and I have almost overcome this now, but after reading this blog I finally got it on all levels.
    You are amazing!!!
    Many Thanks
    Patricia ??

    Is this false light also what people see/experience upon death? I have heard this is a trap and one could get stuck there?

  8. Isabel George November 29, 2018 at 7:55 am

    Hi Gigi, for years I have been trying to understand what has been happening to me and your False Light video has possibly explained what I have been experiencing. I am referring to the aspect of false light and the mind connection, the feeling of incredible euphoric rushes in the mind and also through the lower chackras. I have not been able to understand what they mean and why I have been experiencing them! These experiences are connected with someone I had been seeing, who perhaps didn’t shine with light and was manipulative but these euphoric sensations would keep a hold of me in the relationship. I have now backed away from this person but still sometimes feel that energy rush. If you could shed any more light on this for me would be so appreciative. Always learning from you….Thank you!

  9. Brett July 21, 2018 at 2:47 pm

    This experience is very real, especially when you are just starting out in spirituality. I believed everything they were telling me. I would get telepathic messages to kill myself. Even jump in front of cars. Thank goodness my discernment was evolved enough at the time to know it was coming from an outside source and not me. What you describe here is exactly what myself, and others with mental illness have all experienced but the field of psychology has no idea how to integrate any spiritual information into diagnosis or treatment. Mania/psychosis experienced through these encounters are called manic episodes, and following these “episodes” are periods of extreme depression. So in a sense, these episodes are when they get all of our energy, and then we have none for ourselves until they need it again. Hence another “episode” occurs. I was diagnosed Bipolar because of this and placed in 3 psychiatric facilities within a two month period following my psychic development and interest in spirituality.

    They feed off of people relentlessly in these hospitals. It’s horrible. They actively enjoy screwing with mind energy to the point that people become non-functional. Every person I speak to in support groups for Bipolar have all thought they were gods once at the height of mania before psychosis. They believed they were invincible, inflated ego, excessive sex etc. All the symptoms you name in this article. I know this is a dark posting, and I’m sorry if this triggered anyone, but like Gigi said, there are vey dark places within 4D that we can access that are not for our higher good, and can even be dangerous. Discernment is key here, and working on our personal shadows. They cannot prey on you once you love yourself. The horrible things they tell you about your existence and yourself become laughable and then mute.

  10. Melvin May 20, 2018 at 11:54 pm

    This is so interesting. I’m quite new to all of this, and I try to understand these things as well as I can.
    I feel like some of the description given can be given to a certain “Blue White-Water-bird”, which was my first encounter with spirituality (which started a week and a half ago).
    This person said that as long as you don’t fear demons or those of lower vibrational frequencies you shouldn’t worry. However this here seems more resonant with me, and makes me want to let go of my trauma. I’ve grown up in a very christian home where demons was a real fear in childhood, and I’ve had a cycle now for 4 years where I’ve identified as atheist, so I could just brush off any esotherical “nonsense”. However now I feel more open to spirituality, and again maybe I feel somewhat afraid of demons.
    How do I keep myself falling victim from the lower plan of 4D, and really connect higher? In terms of meditation practice and what not? 🙂
    Thank you for this article and all your work Gigi, I feel you have been a good vessel of higher knowledge for me. Much love from a fellow Sun Aries <3

    Hi,I have a had quite a few dreams in the past about vampires.I’m not sure if I’d call them nightmares,exactly,more like bad dreams.The word “heavy” comes to mind.I’d just like to ask,what could that mean? If you have time to resspond,thank you very much!

  12. Aveed Majd February 8, 2018 at 2:02 pm

    Hi Gigi,

    I really liked this piece on the false light. It triggered so many good intuitive insights for me, and has helped me form a deeper understanding of relationships in my life. I needed this clarity, and the timing was perfect ?. Is it true that you’ve never been connected to the false light? If so, I am curious as to how it is you were able to avoid that.

    Over the last 6 months, I started consciously connecting with my spirit guides for the first time. At first, I was connecting with my actual guides, but I was not trusting their subtle language and having trouble focusing. As a result, I grew impatient and started to develop a frustrated attitude towards the connections. I wanted to feel like I had more control over the process. This attitude led me into a 3-month hiatus with the false light, which I was unaware of until a few days ago. I feel like the differences between connecting to the false light and the real light can be rather subtle… at least they feel that way to me as I am just beginning to really recognize what’s what. However, the effect of connecting with the false light is overwhelmingly negative over time, versus spirit guides. So one way to recognize that you are connecting to the false light is finding yourself moving into a more negative place—old trauma, relationship wounds, etc. rather than a more positive place—healing, forgiveness, deep sense of peace and joy. At the time, I told myself my spirit guides must have been taking me to my trauma so I could heal and move on… so it’s easy to rationalize negative experiences in meditation at first. Here are some differences that I can now recount in connecting to the false light versus your spirit guides:

    • False light gives you a sort of euphoric feeling, but like Gigi said, it is mental stimulation and empty. It can still make your whole body kind of pulse with energy, which is something that happens to me when I am both deeply in love and deeply in astral realm 4D meditation, so that can be confusing, but the difference really is empty mental stimulation v. a whole body/chakra peaceful, loving feeling. If you are having trouble discerning which one you are in, a good hack is to see if you’re in your mind while connecting. I noticed that if I left my mind to a large enough degree and stayed in my heart, I would automatically not be connecting to the false light, even if I wasn’t in the greatest mood—neutrality and a mind that’s turned off was enough for me to connect with my guides instead of the false light.
    • Your mood—if you are in negative emotions while meditating, it is difficult to reach your spirit guides. Your ego can trick you here, however. For example, I am healing some serious relationship wounds, and at times would allow my ego to put me in a “good mood” with thoughts of revenge, etc. So be careful you aren’t convincing yourself you are in a good mood via your ego. And don’t feel like you can’t meditate if you are in a bad mood—just do your best to take it to neutral, and beware of the ego.
    • Type of communication—the false light pretty much exclusively communicated with me in a very external way—beings outside myself having a conversation with me (the feeling of separation is key) and the communication was always a streaming clairaudient conversation, like we were talking to each other. My spirit guides, on the other hand, communicate with me in a much more subtle way, which feels like it is an internal communication, and often occurs via images, feelings, and claircognizant thoughts which I often think are coming from me.
    • Nature of communication—the false light often fueled my negative fire, subtly and through various manipulative tactics. Whereas my spirit guides messages always make me feel good—not because they are babying me—sometimes there is tough love—but because the messages tend to be either fond memories to help me feel love, gratitude, etc., or explanations for others’ behavior to help me forgive (since I’m in a huge forgiveness/releasing old relationships phase). Sometimes, it can be difficult to discern in the moment what kind of messages you are getting, but I think a good rule of thumb is that when you walk away from a meditation with your spirit guides, you should almost always feel better, or more filled with love-based emotions (e.g., having found a more peaceful understanding regarding a situation that may have been bothering you); whereas when you walk away from the false light, you tend to be more filled with fear-based emotions.

    I think the best way to go into a meditation and not get caught in the false light is to be as little in your head as possible, as much in your heart as possible. As far as mood, just aim for neutrality or higher. Then keep in mind the differences I mentioned above and use that as your guide post.

    Also Gigi, you asked the question of why people would choose the false light. For me, it wasn’t because the false light felt better than my current state; it actually felt worse. The reason I went with it is because I was in a very challenging time in my life and felt connection was the only solution. I put so much pressure on my connection process and connected from such a frustrated place. As a result, I inadvertently clicked into the program many of us have—you have to work/suffer for anything that’s really good in life. I hope that makes sense. If not, let me know and I’ll clarify.

      Dear Aveed,

      Thank you so much for sharing your experiences and letting us learn from your difficult times. Your explanation helped me tremendously to make more sense of the difference, but more importantly it took away the fear for the false light. We’ve all felt the dark of the 4d, but not everybody can talk about it so eloquently. Tank you.

      All my love,

    Gigi you magnificent witch! You mentioned the role of the sex essentially being used as an inducement to connect with the lower astral.

    I wish that you would write or speak about the massive pull that sex has on our lives. It is a physical experience for sure, but there is so much more.

    It can lead to such love, but also chaos, hurt, pain, and even violence.

    Anyhow, I would love to hear your unique perspective.

    As to your question on whether we’ve experienced false light, false “spiritual” realms, false guides, I guess I can’t say I’ve realized this, though likely it has been about. Wish I had the clarity and recall some seem to have, but maybe that is protective in itself as I am unable to serve as a useful conduit for someone’s false teachings via the Astral.

  15. Anton February 4, 2018 at 2:50 pm

    Always look forward to your videos. Mixed feeling about this one, some great insights but I fear it will scare some and fear is one of the biggest obstacles for many. And fearful thinking itself will drag us to these realms. We are all vampires and donors, hey what are friends for? It is just when the energy exchanges go out of balance, the always needy friend, the fair-weather friend, etc.
    Also, I suspect that most of your followers, especially those able to really take in this message, are way past this stage, the low astral stuff has long been fly-over territory having dealt with these challenges in their sleep. We (usually) stop having childish nightmares because at some point we have stood up in our dreams and faced the bullies.
    My other point of minor discord is just about semantics. Still another placement for the Etheric realm. Some put it at the upper physical, the last physical subplane. When they get out at that level they see the physical world very much as it is but they describe feeling very heavy, barely able to crawl. Mandelker uses the Etheric as the density after the first pure spiritual density. There is a lot of confusion in the numbering of planes, densities, dimensions. Are densities planes or dimensions or something else? Dimensions alone are tricky, Physicists will tell you the physical has four dimensions x,y,z,t. Perhaps a fifth dimension is more like time, maybe time has it’s own x,y,&z…

      I would not be a fully rounded intuitive if I did not teach on this. The shadow and shadow realms is imperative to teach about as is boundaries and energy dynamics.If we have dealt with it then here is no charge, there is no fear and there is no repulsion. 4d is the level of reality where our mind and paradigms are mirrored to us, good and not so good. I have yet to meet someone who is beyond this, although I do think that people want to stay in the more positive teachings, like a vacation, rather than look at shadows. No one wants to be uncomfortable, especially if they are in pain which is why I have a trigger warning.

      When it comes to specifics about how to describe the planes/dimensions/states there will not be a consensus on this because what people see is different depending on where they are rooted internally. It is a flexible scale depending on the parameters that you set. It can be very specific with lots of striations or it can be very vast and consist of larger membranes.

        Semantics about dimensions, planes, levels, waves of frequency and location(s) are definitely perceived by how we take in where we are in the moment we are in. Part of this is how we are vibrating. Where are we in our heart? And, in our heart where are we in relation to our shadow? What are our feelings? We have all experienced pain and trauma of some kind in the life we’re in right now. I often describe trauma experiences like a pain scale at a doctors office: 1-10; except instead of a relatively smiley face I say, “Someone fell off a tricycle as a kid.” And instead of a head exploding I say, “Someone witnessed a mass murder.” And while it may appear that the person who experienced a mass murder is in the worst shape pain is relative. I experienced severe horrific trauma which I have put a bubble of white light all around so it will not be “read” or “felt” or “heard” or “sensed in any way” by you. And around that time in my life, I don’t remember when exactly (because it was so traumatic my memory was wiped but there was still residue;there’s always residue! ) I started to see phantoms and the church on my street on fire. And my brother saw them too. I recently broke up with a friend who is a Martyr and while her head never exploded she is addicted to being mummified by psychic red tape and her energy is very “sticky.” It was very hard to do but I did it and I’m so much better off. I found your videos yesterday after I attended a family wedding which bathed me and my brother with love. Gigi thank you for having the courage to put “The False Light” out with your spirit’s clear brilliant bluish light. Much much love to you and everyone who reads this.

    I am new to all of this but I am constantly waking up at night. At this point I see a vision of someone, which disappears within a second. I cannot remember if I was having a dream prior, but it is happening with more frequecy.

  17. Lindsey February 3, 2018 at 11:24 pm

    I have an elementary understanding of most of the things you write about. What does it mean for the 3rd dimension if the lower portion of the 4th dimension is where dark vampiric beings stay? Does more density mean less evolved?

    1. Gigi Young February 4, 2018 at 7:45 pm

      Hello Lindsey,

      Great question. 3d, where we are rooted now, is a different set of parameters completely, it is a different dimension. 3d is not so much a continuation of 4d but a world all in its own. The way that we relate to 4d, from our perspective here in 3d, is through our mind. Therefore, when we connect with 4d based in the quality of our minds.

      When looking at dimensions you always want to consider them in relation to where you are now (3d). What they translate to for us here, how we interact with them etc.

      I hope that helps!

      – Gigi

        Thank you, it did.

        and for me too… thank you 🙂

    Something like this could be make someone lose trust in the true light itself, and not just in the obvious ways. If the false, light is +-, what’s to say the true light is not a ++- or +[to the Nth degree]- is also under the dark spectrum. Even if you have moved past the negative parallels and have honed true absolute objectively positive discernment to the N’th degree into the 5D and beyond realms, the extent of any form of influence positive or negative is effectively infinite. To say otherwise would not be taking into account that anything and everything is possible within the universe as well as to state absolutes can be a dangerous and dishonest proposition though not dishonest of a person but of the inherent nature though isn’t really dishonesty by the same definition as this definition is not reference to intention. While it can be seen as dangerous to assume at any point you are “out of the woods” regardless of the circumstance, whether one is or no. The mechanics of discernment itself can still correlate to subjective principles. The truest and most honest of energies and beings can still (have the potential to) be blinded by yet another layer of the infinite onion. At some point the true-true-true light will have to shine through but in this way however, it breaks down the barriers between light and dark. Anomalous contextual integration and energetic discrepancy can probably only go so far – probably.
    However this doesn’t strictly and only refer to negative influence but positive as well. I.e. it can work both ways.

    -There is too much extensive inference to go through but for clarification though there’s a difference between being fear based and taking into account every or as much pssibility(ies) and angles as able (because I know someone might try to call this out as a a fear based statement even though that is not it’s purpose).
    The only “fact” (even as a subjective form) is that even the most advanced and extensive spiritual light beings will probably never know the fullest extent of the amount of layers behind the veil, behind the veil, behind the veil….. Nor does anyone necessarily need to except in reference to them. You only need to go as far or deep as You need or want to.

      Also Yay! Gigi hasn’t abandoned the blog! 😀
